Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: In the shot of a priest saying the Lord's Prayer, we see smoke rising from an attack by a flamethrower behind him. In the next shot there's no smoke until the flamethrower fires again.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: Before leaving the beach party Kilgore says, " Lance, go with Mike and let him pick out a board for you." Lance goes from looking down at the ground to looking up at the Colonel between shots.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: Colonel Kilgore walks away from his helicopter saying, "Body cards, bring my body cards." Behind him is a radioman and an antenna that is kinked at a 45 degree angle. Two shots later the antenna is standing straight up without adjustment.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: During the beach party as Captain Willard is saying, "He was one of those guys that had that weird light around him." Note he is holding a cigarette and drinking a Schlitz, with four cans of Budweiser in front of him. In his next shot, just seconds later, there is another can of beer and the cigarette is gone despite the fact he has not moved at all.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Audio problem: After they all get into the helicopters and take off, a soldier is blowing "charge" on his trumpet. This is an obvious over-dub, as he takes a deep breath in the middle of it without missing a note.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: When the Captain asks the Chief for the binoculars the boat is standing still but in the next shot as the Captain is watching Kilgore's men they're moving rapidly towards the shore. However, in the next shot, a close-up of the Captain, the ship is back in the same place and standing still.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Audio problem: Sitting on the boat listening to the B-52 strike, when Clean says, "Charlie don't never see 'em or hear 'em, man." his lips do not match his words.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Audio problem: As they look at the B-52 strike from the boat Clean says, "Secondary burning," then he says something else that was edited out.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: There's no indication that Captain Willard didn't leave for his mission immediately after having dinner with the General, being that his R&R was over. That nasty cut on his thumb is all healed without any band-aid on it by the time we see him in the next scene on the PBR. There was also a dark scab on his middle finger that was there as he smoked a cigarette in the end of the scene with the general that has also disappeared.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: Clean's dog tag and cross change between scenes. When he first hears the "Arc light" B-52 strike we see the cross hanging at the same level as the dog tag then when he meets Colonel Kilgore the chains have been rearranged so that the dog tag is two inches lower than the top of the cross.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Willard punches the mirror with his right fist, he bloodies it up considerably. Later in the scene when the soldiers come and throw him into the shower, we see a close-up of his right hand without any cuts or blood.

20th Mar 2006

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: Captain Willard thinks to himself about how many men he may have killed in the war and we see the PBR up close for the first time. The crew on this boat is not the same as the crew we'll be meeting shortly because at least four of them are white.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: As everyone sits down to have dinner at the General's all the glasses are empty. The next time we see them they're full but no one went around the table filling them.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: As Dennis Hopper walks up to the bamboo cage where Captain Willard is being held, a purple haze surrounds them. In the next shot when Dennis hopper gives him a drink of water the purple haze is gone.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: As the general reminisces about Colonel Kurtz being a man of, "wit and humor" the roll on his plate moves and changes from being whole to having a bite out of it and back.

Continuity mistake: No one has touched it, but when the General passes the roast beef to Jerry, the pepper shaker, which was just next to the salt shaker in front of him, has been moved to the other side of the table.
